Looks like The Mighty MJD won his bet. We glumly welcome you this morning with the news that Team USA lost to Greece 101-95 in the semifinals of the World Basketball Championships.

The Americans struggled with — go figure — their 3-point and free throw shooting, and Greece — which has no players in the NBA — did not. It's not the Olympics disaster, of course ... but it's not a particularly pleasant morning in the life of Mike Krzyzewski. Which we guess isn't too bad.


The U.S. will play the loser of Spain-Argentina in the bronze medal game. We're sure they'll be fired up for that one.
